FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team; The Season Wrap Up

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team; The Season Wrap Up Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team; The Season Wrap Up. GW39…. What’s the opposite of teambuilding? We’ve all been there; be it at school, at Cub Scouts, at work or as part of a sports team. Some bright spark decides it’s raft building day in the naive hope that this somehow will strengthen bonds and ties and bring you all together into some sort of seamless unbeatable unit. Cue 11am on the edge of a freezing river and there are two distinct schools of thought already at play. The alpha males are out in force with their lofty ideas, staring one another down whilst some others stand back shrugging their cold shoulders with indifference and some others are cowering under the trees hoping nobody notices that...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW38

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW38 Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW38. Our GW37 was slightly better than average, but only slightly as we scored 52pts vs an average of 48. However we consolidated our position in the top 10k with a small green arrow to our new rank of 6,152, which is a season best. Top 5k is our aim then, our previous best being 5,921. Like many last week our highest scorers were in defence with TAA & Doherty posting double digit returns. Goals from Salah & Zaha were gratefully received and saved us from a shocker of a week. Our captain (Aguero) did bugger all. But he was in good c(K)ompany… With the final week upon us and just the one free transfer in hand and £0.2m in the bank, let’s see what magic the committee has conjured up as we seek ...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW37

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW37 Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW37. Bend over for Callum Wilson We had a decent GW36 in the end, having belatedly played our Bench Boost, and we ended up with 114 points; 45 above the average and a rank rise of over 5k to land in 7,129th place. The question over the piece though was really just whether we would have been better sticking with the original plan of BB’ing in GW35 and TC’ing in GW36. Surely none of our committee would be anal / bothered enough to go and check?! Well, apparently… oh yes they bloody well would! Apparently then, had we BB’d in 36 we would have got an extra 16 points (allowing for the (then) proposed transfer of Callum Wilson in and accounting for no TC points). This week we would have gai...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW36

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW36 Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW36. “I tender my resignation….” Oh dear, oh dear. What a shambles. We of course cancelled our proposed Bench Boost and opted instead to play our Triple Captain chip on Aguero. You know the rest. Kun contributed a mere single assist in 2 matches while Dunk & Duffy recorded a clean sheet apiece and came within a whisker of doubling that. At least it was Eriksen that broke Brighton hearts. Overall we scored 91pts which in all honesty is hardly bad. It was still 24 above the overall average but it could and should have been triple figures and those opportunities don’t come around often. Had we followed our original plan and bought Wilson and then Bench Boosted we’d have landed on 10...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW35

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW35 Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW35. It’s all in the math(s). Like many others we played our wildcard last week and like many others we had an absolute SHOCKER! With no representatives in the Friday night game our game-week kicked off at lunchtime on Saturday. The writing was on the wall when our captain, Son, was benched. A certain member of the management was rather smug about this. Son eventually climbed off of the bench and almost immediately picked up an assist to go with Eriksen’s assist and Loris’ clean sheet. 20pts from our Spurs trio left us feeling good about our wildcard. Little did we know that they would account for approximately 60% of our total score. We were lucky that Messer’s Duffy & Dunk didn’t score minus points as...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW34

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW34 Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW34. Mane is more explosive… We shall expand on the title of the article later but for the purposes of this week he certainly wasn’t. In fact he was our lowest scorer with just the 1 solitary point. And to think that we made him our Vice Captain, the margins between success and failure can be that thin. Fabianski did little better with 2, although that was to be expected. Wilson matched him and Barnes fared little better with 3. Alexander-Arnold managed an assist for us but still only brought home a 4. Fortunately the rest weighed in rather more heavily. If Wan-B’s 7 was unexpectedly welcome then Digne’s 8 was a bolt from the blue. Our transfer in last week was Maddison and he ‘...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW33

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW33 The 100 Club We began fearing for our Free Hit team early doors, namely the second when our captain Aguero first looked over to the bench. Whenever he does that you usually don’t see him again for a few weeks. And sure enough, there he was gone, albeit with a decent captains score in the bag already, for a single game-week player anyway. Things got worse when Lindelof did indeed fail to appear, especially bad as we had ‘prior’ warning of this but chose to ignore it. That decision did ultimately play into our hands though as had we acted we would probably have dispensed with Azpi and Laporte in some sort of defensive reshuffle to accommodate Smalling and his own goal. Keeping the latter two paid dividends big time as they brought in 34...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Site Team GW32

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW32 The Mané event…. Sometimes it’s all about nailing your captain and everything else just falls into place. We voted for Mané and we ignored the rumours flying around and the game’s most in form player did us proud. He scored, he assisted, he collected maximum bonus points for a 13pt return. We even had a last minute vote to double check that we were all comfortable sticking with him; and it was fairly unanimous, we even decided to do so on the basis that he would be a differential come the deadline! Doubled to 26 he alone outscored some teams we saw posted on the boards. Digne’s clean sheet and Anderson’s assist were our only other scorers! The former being a particularly welcome and unexpected surprise. We played with just 10 players but our scor...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW31

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW31 The bare necessities… A relatively successful week, but one that somehow felt it should have been so much more… Our decision to captain Salah over Vardy cost us 11 valuable points, but we are at least grateful that we brought the latter in at all after his 16 point haul. Our score of 56 was alright – it was better than the average of 48 and saw us achieve the smallest of green arrows, for the second week in a row, to rest at 29, 423rd. However, its a win and we’ll always take a win. When it is stripped down, 48 of the 56 points came from just five of the players, with new recruit Vardy leading the party, while Hazard & Jimenez topped up our score late on with a goal apiece. Our 5-a-side team was made up of assisters Digne and Cap...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW30

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW30 Paying the penalty… The upside to selecting penalty takers is obvious, the downside is a -2 if they ever miss one. To have one do so is bad luck, to have two doing so leaves you looking around for dead black cats in your rear view mirror. Twice. Pogba and Aubameyang combined for a -2 for us, not quite what you expect for a near combined £19m outlay and 20% of your FPL budget! The fact that we had 14 points sat on the bench doesn’t help matters but the rest pulled together to somehow get us 51 and a green arrow. Albeit a small one, we moved up about 6k to land in 30,118th position. Feels a bit like we are treading water but with all the chips to come we are still hopeful that we are well poised for a strong finish. Jimenez and Hazard were ou...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW29

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW29 No Kun do… When the week begins with the ever consistent Jimenez blanking against bottom club Huddersfield and then Doherty conceding a clean sheet in the dying minutes you could be forgiven for thinking it would be another one of those weeks. The truth is, it very nearly was. It took another attacking full back to pull us back from the brink really, as TAA weighed in with an unusual hat-trick of assists, a clean sheet and full bonus points for an unexpected haul of 18. Just as well really as the rest of them were a bit lacklustre. Digne got us a clean sheet, spoiled by an inevitable yellow, idiot that he is. Shaw and Pogba both chipped in with assists and Aubameyang got us a goal but it wasn’t quite the haul we were hoping for, especially ...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW28

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW28 Ashley does Dallas… We’ve had indifferent game-week’s, we’ve had bad game-week’s and then we’ve had this game-week. A thought probably shared by a good many. We began with the faint hope of having a solid 11 plus a possible sub, and ended up with 9. A thought probably shared by a good many. We began with a seemingly solid captain choice, he came home with 4 points, we didn’t even answer the door. A thought probably shared by a good many. We did manage to cobble together a hat-trick of sorts, we got a full set; a clean sheet, an assist and a goal. That’d be news if it was from one player, unfortunately it wasn’t, it was between the whole sorry lot of them. Well, the ones who actually bothered to play...[Read More]
